Ravens Rumor Mill: Free Agency And Trades

Within the last 48 hours, I’ve heard some crazy rumors regarding the Baltimore Ravens. From Nnamdi Asomugha to Darnell Dockett, it seems that the Ravens are interested in everyone.  Need help sorting it all out? Continue reading to find out what is going on with the Ravens.

More after the jump…


I was hearing a lot about Baltimore going after Nnamdi. The majority of this was from untrusted sources or fans so I wouldn’t take it as gospel. Now that the Houston Texans, who were in the running for Nnamdi, have signed Johnathan Joseph, the likelihood of them acquiring him is gone. The New York Jets are in the market for a corner, and it’s either going to be Asomugha or Antonio Cromartie. Besides them, I’ve been hearing San Francisco in the mix. Jason La Confora has said that there could be a few more teams hiding in the weeds but nothing too serious. The Ravens are rumored to be only $4 – $6 million under cap so signing a big name will have to wait until Haloti Ngata’s contract is restructured. That should add a good amount of space but until then, don’t expect anything big.


During the past few hours, Twitter has exploded with rumors of Darnell Dockett joining the Ravens. Baltimore needs a pass rusher and Dockett certainly fits the description. However, those rumors were quickly smashed after Darnell posted a series of tweets:

I’m not tweeting no more I’m pissed! Me to the Ravens no no no! Ttyl I’m calling my coach!

About 30 minutes later, Darnell tweeted this:

Whoop whoop my coach says no way I leave AZ and he even said NINO can come to training camp we getting bunk beds! This the best day EVER!

Sorry Baltimore, but it looks like Darnell will not be wearing the Purple and Black this year.


Osi has been very disgruntled in New York. He wants out and the Ravens would love to get him.They need a pass rusher but I’mnot sure if these rumors are true. A few trusted sources have tweeted that the Ravens have some interest in him. The Ravens would greatly benefit from a veteran presence on the line and he would bolster the defense. Osi seems like the most promising but only time will tell.

    I’ve now heard on Twitter from a Ravens Insider that the Ravens will not be making a move for Nnamdi whatsoever. I’ve been doubting it after ESPN stopped mentioning the Ravens as in the hunt for him but keeping my hopes up a little but now I’m giving up. I’m just getting annoyed because they aren’t even signing their own guys who they need….Carr, Landry, McClain. I thought they were trying for Joseph but obviously the Texans got there first so the only other CB they could be trying for is Cromartie. But honestly I rather the Jets get him because that means no Nnamdi for them and Nnamdi and Revis on the same team would just be nasty and I don’t want Flacco to face that in the regular season or the post season since he tends to throw interceptions at the worst time.

    @ltilley It’s pretty much a guarantee that Nnamdi is going to be on the Jets. He wants to be on a winning team and the Jets are making cuts so they can get the $$ to work out. I still like our secondary as of now. Landry will be gone to the Jags on a five year deal at the end of the day which means Zbikowski will have to step up. Also, McClain has tweeted that he is very close to getting a deal done and it doesn’t sound like it’s going to be a Raven anymore. I think Le’Ron will be the Ravens biggest loss but they could always go after Vonta Leach. Official free agency doesn’t start until 6PM today and I have a feeling that the Ravens will be busy.

    @R_Babcock I hope so because at this point, it feels like this team will be worse than they were last season. But, in Ozzie we trust. I’m looking forward to what happens later this evening.
